The Armenian Genocide

Yesterday was a day of contrasts. We started with a visit to the Armenian church equivalent of the Vatican. Had lunch at a workshop for children.
The final stop was the memorial to the 2 million killed in 1915 by the Turks who wanted all ethnic Armenians out of eastern Turkey.
